New York Physicians Finding Things a Lot Better in Texas

Side Note: They say things are bigger and better in Texas and this is true for New York physicians who relocate to the Lone Star State. Due to tort reform legislation, known at Prop 12, that went into effect in 2003 in Texas, physicians are flocking to Texas. The article below provides some great statistics on just how true this is –especially with New Yorkers. The article details the exact number of NY physicians who have made the move to Texas since 2003 and the dramatic differences in the medical malpractice insurance rates between the states. Together, New York and Texas illustrate the broad spectrum of the state of medicine and how it can vary dramatically.
